In July 2012, it was reported that the Super PAC Citizens 4 Ethics in Government was established earlier in the month to work against the re-election of Rep. Diane Black. The Super PAC's sole contributor, however - Andy Miller - was also a major fundraiser and backer of Zelenik, who was challenging Black in the primary. The connection raised questions over campaign finance laws and the legality of campaigns coordinating with Super PACs. Black's campaign argued that the relationship violated federal law. Zelenik, however, denied any connection.
